Antelope Healthy Start offers educational, fun art program in the summer
Placemats were the order of the day Monday as children in the Antelope Valley Schools Healthy Start project took part in the fourth annual Children’s Art Program.
Antelope Valley area artist Kathi Fulstone utilizes various media, including crayon, clay, wire art, watercolor painting, mask painting and scratch art that appeals to all age groups.
The Summer food Service Program is providing snacks and lunches to all students.
The program exposes children to art, helping them to develop their talents and creativity, introducing them to different kinds of media and helping them enjoy summer in an educational and productive way, said Bonnie Smith of Healthy Start.
Thirty-five boys and girls are participating in the program, which began July 24 and will run through Aug. 11 each morning at the Coleville, Calif., Healthy Start site.
The summer program was made possible through the help of Mono County Health Department HIV/AIDS program and is funded in part by the Mono County Arts Council, town of Mammoth Lakes and the people of the county, Smith said.
